Anthony Bourdain's Mother Speaks Out

Anthony Bourdain’s remains won’t return to U.S. right away because of French formalities

And in an Instagram post, Bourdain's ex-wife, Ottavia Busia, broke her silence while posting a photo of their 11-year-old daughter, Ariane, who performed on Sunday at the DROM music venue in New York City.

Since the chef's tragic passing, filmmaker Argento has been blamed by online trolls after TMZ reported that she was pictured holding hands with another man in Rome days before his death.

He had been in Kaysersberg, France shooting an episode of his popular CNN series Parts Unknown at the time, and French authorities have said that the death was a suicide. His cause of death was revealed to be suicide by hanging.

The image showed Ariane performing a song on stage.

"She was fantastic", Busia-Bourdain wrote. "So strong and fearless. I hope you are having a good trip, wherever you are", Busia wrote.

Fans will recall that Bourdain and Busia were married for nine years, but split in 2016.

The couple was married in 2007 and separated in 2016 but had not divorced. Busia, a mixed martial arts fighter, spoke about her relationship with Bourdain in a 2012 interview with The New York Times.

Trump rips Canada and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in tweets from Singapore
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has lambasted the US President Donald Trump's decision to renege on the G7 joint statement . That came after months of threatening, and then imposing sanctions on America's top trading partners, like Canada.

Bouquets of flowers, heartfelt notes and moving quotes by Bourdain himself adorned the makeshift memorial outside the eatery.

Bourdain, 61, was found hanged in his hotel room on Friday morning by his good friend and fellow chef Eric Ripert. I urge you to be that Phoenix. "You brought people together". His depression won. Anthony and Asia had a free relationship, they loved without borders of traditional relationships, and they established the parameters of their relationship early on.

McGowan also took to Twitter to share a list of suicide prevention hotlines in several countries.

Anthony Bourdain's mother, Gladys Bourdain, honored her "feisty and very talented" late son days after he died of an aparent suicide.

"My soul [sic] duty as a parent and as a father, particularly raising a little girl who is going to grow up to be a young woman, is that she will never look to men for affirmation, or anyone else for affirmation or self-worth or be physically intimidated by anyone", he told Mom.me in 2015.

McGowan says she was asked to write the letter, presumably by Argento, and goes on to say that when someone we love dies by suicide, it hurts, and it's natural for people to want to lash out and blame.

McGowan also wrote of Argento and Bourdain's "free relationship", saying they had "instant chemistry" and that Argento had been "her rock during her hardships of this previous year". Anthony's internal war was his war, but now she's been left on the battlefield to take the bullets.
